My current research focuses primarily on the material, social and political dimensions of post-industrial landscape and sites, rooted in an inter-disciplinary approach that integrates archaeology with a range of perspectives and methods from the social sciences including ethnographic work with resident communities. Forthcoming and published work is listed here, more information can be found on my academia.edu page.
